Southern Wales region

South Wales is steeped in history and heritage. It is often overlooked as a tourist area but it has much to commend it to the visiting public.

As can be seen below there are many things to do and see in this picturesque part of Wales.

Come and visit - you will not be disappointed


Things to do - too many to mention ...........

Activities - walking, fishing, golf. The local area has many golf courses including the world famous Celtic Manor Resort, the venue for the 2010 Ryder Cup.

Entertainment - Derwen Cottages are ideally situated for Cardiff's Millennium Stadium as well as other venues such as the Motorpoint Arena, the St David's Centre and the Millennium Centre. Doctor Who and Torchwood location spotting is a popular pastime in this area.

Sports - the Millennium Stadium is within easy reach as is the Cardiff City Stadium the home of Cardiff City Football Club, Cardiff Arms Park the ground of the Cardiff Blues and also the Swalec Stadium which is a Test venue as well as the homeground of Glamorgan Cricket Club.

Seaside - Barry Island, Porthcawl and Ogmore are all less than an hour away. The Gower Peninsular is a popular area for a day out.

Heritage Sites - Big Pit, Rhondda Heritage Park and St Fagans for a start.

Eating out - Derwen Cottages are conveniently situated to a family run public house and restaurant. The Cefn Mably Arms has a full menu and is highly recommended if you just want a quiet meal and drink at the end of the day without the hassle of driving. There are also many other country pubs and restaurants in the area as well as Cardiff Bay for the more adventurous

"Beautiful house"

We didn't have great weather, the house and local area was beautiful though. Perfect for families, we could all sit around the table to eat and then relax in the large comfy sofas with plenty of … More

"Beautiful, relaxing stay."

We stayed for a week in Derwen Fawr, which is an absolutely beautiful house in a very peaceful location. The photos we saw online definitely don't do it justice. The rooms are large and tasteful… More

"Lots of space...."

Great space inside the house and so really good for families - with the cottage next door it would make a fab group get-away! Very little space outside (not a problem for winter stays of course!) but … More

Thank you for your review. You are most welcome to book directly with us next time. The shower issue was notified to us by the next guest and it was dealt with and resolved immediately. We removed the games console because parts were going missing or were being damaged through overactive use so we can only apologise if you were misled as there was no intention to do so.

"Happy Wedding Stay"

Excellent, spacious house; ideal for family parties and easily located for Cardiff or Newport.
Well furnished and a friendly welcome, with a very useful food welcome pack.
Coped easily with many wedding guests coming and going and was warm and comfortable.

"This property had everything you could require for an enjoyable visit"

We thoughly enjoyed staying in this cottage, it was clean, the beds were comfortable and the lounge had wonderful sofas. The kitchen was very well equiped for everything we prepared. The location suited us to travel into Cardiff for the Speedway GP at the Millenium Stadium, and to spend time at Barry Island and Weston-super-Mare. Best of all was the welcome by our hosts and the attention to anything we might need. We are looking forward to our return visit in 2013

"Lovely comfortable spacious homely house"

We arrived late Friday night and the owners were happy to let us in at that late hour. The house is well equipped, decorated beautifully, furnishings and bedding were all in excellent condition. The owners were more than happy to help with any queries and even left us some groceries on our arrival, which were much appreciated on Saturday morning breakfast. Pub next door also did excellent food. Would highly recommend this house to stay at.
